Tap-dancing woman from
Brooklyn, 23, is crowned Miss
America after speaking out
against armed guards in schools

Daily Mail (UK), by Nina Golgowski

A 23-year-old woman from Brooklyn, New York, has won the title of Miss America - beating out 13,000 other contestants including the pageant’s first autistic contestant and a woman with Tourettes. Mallory Hagan won the beauty pageant on Saturday night after tap dancing to James Brown´s ´Get Up Off of That Thing´ in Las Vegas and answering a question about whether armed guards belong in grade schools by saying the nation should not fight violence with violence. Hagan defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third.

It looks like all awards, from the Nobel to the ´´beauty´´ pagents are irrelevant now. It is all political correctness now. Contestant´s minds must be ´´right´´ and their speech carefully crafted to regurgitate the desired themes. None are worth watching any more.

Why did the contestants bother with wearing anything? Miss America, my foot, put some clothes on.

Actually, just having gorgeous women parading and posing outside schools...might do the trick.

I was watching my paint dry last night.
as to a 23 year participating in a floozy contest (oh I´m sorry I meant scholarship program) Too bad she has been corrupted by PC talk and not know anything about how this country was founded and what people gave up for freedom from tyranny.

Based only on the photos I´d say Miss SC was robbed. Actually, every other woman featured in these photos is more attractive and have better legs.

she should read up on the people in DC who
have kids in private schools with armed guards protecting their little darlings. This also included the people in MSM. I think if O is serious about how safe the country would be if all guns were taken away should begin with example and dismiss his secret service personal. Just let
Michelle tell everyone that this is the law
spoken by her husband and voila, the problem will no longer exist, N´est pas?

Right...fight violence with photo shoots, not guns!

Ya´ know, every time one of these supposed ´exemplary´ young ladies opens her mouth at one of these ´meat viewing´ competitions, I can´t help but recall the old hippy bumper sticker...

"Visualize Whirled Peas!"

The absolute vapid mental state of ´progressives´ is on display daily as an utter lack of reality. Oddly - liberals think it´s the *only* reality. Must be why they piled up a quarter billion corpses last century vying for that ´Utopia´ thing...

You´d think a bright bimbo would at least comment on the spectacular death rate of youth attributable to alcohol.

It´s fine with me if those libs who are not hypocritically using gun-wielding people to protect them, elect to not protect themselves and their loved ones.

I, however, are prepared to do just that if necessary.

Worked with lovely folks from the Phillipines and asked then how Marcos was able to take and hold the country for years - answer: "first they took away our guns. You cannot fight men with guns, when you have nothing."

I thought all the questions asked lacked any shred of merit - - and three tapdancers, a twirler, a modern dance contortionist, crooners and piano players in the final 10 - not much real talent anywhere there. But then that is Miss America 2013 style - and donuts for the losers - tacky tacky.

Back in the 1960s, Miss Wisconsin´s talent was shooting a bow and arrow.
And the new Miss America said something so stupid, I was amazed! "You can´t fight violence with violence!"
Tell that to the police, or as others have noted, those upper class parents who hire armed guards...

I watched most of this thing last night, at least my tv was showing it and I looked at it periodically.

Certainly some more attractice women were eliminated all the way down, but Miss NY had a little more style than most.

As usual, I could probably find 50 better contestants by watching grocery store lines for a couple of hours, but they might not really want to trot around on stage in thrift store bikinis.

She is originally from Opelika Al, (adjacent to Auburn - where she attended college). She only moved to NY in 2008 or so.

Just as NY has to import their senators (at least HRC) they seem to need to import their beauty pageant contestant winners.

After picking a few from the total 53 I had chosen the 3 of the 5 who gave good answers to questions: Wyoming regarding good parents teaching kids truths instead of perscriptions; South Carolina said the sports amnouncer had every right to call Alabama´s girlfiend beautiful & I have forgotten Oklahoma´s answer but it was conservative. I´ll bet if Texas had been given a question in the 5 on guns she would have given a great answer. Bet the judges were split between NY & SC like our country.

They destroyed the girl a few years ago who dared to come out against gay marriage. So all these other girls have to realize that and answer the left´s PC question correctly. Ambushing people in these contests is just a low key level of bullying that works.

WDE #31. Auburn is certainly full of beautiful, talented women ;) however this lib sounds like she may be a bad apple. I don´t really understand how a southern woman, born and raised in the very, very southern town of Opelika, Alabama can be Miss New York. She´s lived there for what, 3 years?! If I were Miss Alabama I would be furious! Competition is much tougher down in Dixie, there is simply no question about that.

Saw photos by accident on my PC. She looks rough. PC rules the day. No honest answer is accepted unless it is shaped to conform with the latest PC meme; gun control. Some girl got skewered a while back for giving her honest opinion on gay marriage and was forever branded. The choice of NY over SC is laden with many political symbolism. Notice the NOW crowd no longer complains about this mindless dribble. NY won, it´s ok now. For now.

The culture war isn´t over until they kill every last one of us. They may be winning battles but they haven´t won the war as long as there are people who believe in decency and affect the people they are around. The war is won one individual at a time and we need to persevere. The Left will not win in the end because their way of lawlessness and personal irresponsibility leads to ruin for those who imbibe their koolaid.

Ms Hagen is just plain looking to me so I think that Miss South Carolina was robbed. Personally I´ve seen better looking women in uniform at the Navy Exchange. All this twit did was give the standard PC dopey answer to her question. That is the only reason why the twit won. The Miss America pageant has become another once great thing that has becoame a joke. I remember the whole controversy in 09 with Carrie Prejean. I do wish Hagan the best of luck because I belive in the old saying, Beauty fades but stupid is forever.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
